West Ayton is a village located just over 5 miles to the West of Scarborough, along the A170. Positioned upon the west bank of the River Derwent and adjacent to East Ayton; linked by the bridge, the villages have a surprisingly good range of amenities such as a doctors surgery, dentists, school, supermarket, shops and places to eat out. Located next to the former Forge Valley train station in West Ayton, No.14 has in the past guarded the gates of Garth End Road. At times it has been referred to as the "porters cottage", suggesting that staff at the station lived here and amongst their other duties included operating the crossing gates. The old platform can clearly be seen from this property's garden and offers a real sense of heritage.

No.14 has over recent years been modernised to now offer a well presented detached house which from its front entrance has a sitting room with a log burning stove, a dining kitchen with integrated white goods, and links to a garden room overlooking the rear as well as having a ground floor shower room. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms serviced by the house bathroom and stairs from the landing turn up to the second floor to reveal a large third bedroom with great views from its windows. Outside, the house conveniently has drives on both its sides and a private garden to the rear down primarily to lawn but with patio areas and in the past a kitchen garden. Behind the house there is a custom built studio/office space allowing the current owners to work from home. However this might just as easily be used as a games room, gym or converted to a garage. There is plumbing to the building and subject to planning consent might readily convert to ancillary accommodation or a 'Granny Annexe'.
